With over 300 dive sites, Grand Cayman is the Caribbean’s preeminent dive destination and offers some of the most diverse dive opportunities in the world. From the shallow diving in Stingray City to the 130-foot (40 m) wall dives, there are multiple opportunities for all skill levels. The water temperature hovers between 79 and 83 degrees Fahrenheit (26.1-28.3 Celsius), and visibility commonly exceeds 100 feet (30 m). With an abundance of experienced, highly professional dive operators, state-of-the-art live aboards and numerous snorkel sites accessible by boat or shore, Grand Cayman is the ideal setting in which to explore the underwater realm. SASY (Supplied Air Snorkeling For Youth) is available at many operators on the island and can provide an exciting introduction to the marine world. Additionally, children between the ages of eight and twelve can participate in the PADI Bubblemaker and the Scuba Rangers programs in which they are introduced to scuba under an instructor’s guidance and can experience the underwater breathing sensation in depths up to 12 feet (3.65 m).
